    Sick

    "If you have to scream, cover your mouth."

    A better tagline would have been "If you've seen Scream, you've seen this."

    During the wild wooly days of the pandemic, (Remember way back then?) two friends Gidon Adlon (Bobby Hill JR) and Bethlehem Million go to a remote lakeside cabin to quarantine and get away from it all.
    Two maniacs show up chasing the girls and slitting throats along the way.
    Sure, we've seen it all before, but have we…

    Mirror (Zerkalo)

    Andrei Tarkovsky's semi-autobiographical film is a masterpiece of cinema and one of the best and most accurate depictions of memory I've ever seen.

    The problem is all the Venoms are masked and finding…

    Mortuary

    "Before you are buried…be sure you are really dead!"

    You have to at least give Mortuary credit for going against the early '80s slasher formula. (For most of the film…that ending is every '80s slasher ever.)

    Mary Beth McDonough (The Waltons…remember that old TV show?) is having a hard time, her father was possibly murdered, her mother (Susan George) has hooked up with a sleazy mortuary owner, (Christopher George) and both are in a witch's coven.
    On top of…
